The BMW M135i is the successor to the 1-series M coupe, which is out of production. The M135i is part of a line of Beemers called M Performance Automobiles, which are positioned as a midway point between full-bore M cars and regular production BMWs. Outside the United States the M135i is available in a three and five door hatch, but car buyers in the US fear not, in 2013 a two-door notchback coupe version has crossed the Atlantic and is available for U.S. customers.

The new model features an extremely impressive 3-liter, straight six-cylinder engine that produces a remarkable 320HP. This permits the M135i to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 5.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). The BMW M135i's unique body styling has been specially designed to handle the impressive power delivered by its powerful engine. The M135i is in fact the most powerful derivative of the second-generation 1-series.

Whether you are looking to own the M135i, 2013 ActiveHybrid 3 or any of the other five select BMW models listed below, your Beemer can see performance gains by simply upgrading to a K&N 33-2997 reusable air filter. Designed to fit directly into the existing BMW air box, this high flow air filter is engineered to increase horsepower and acceleration, while providing outstanding filtration and engine protection.
